Cumulative update package 1 for Host Integration Server 2013


Cumulative update package 1 for Microsoft Host Integration Server 2013 contains hotfixes for issues that were fixed after the release of Host Integration Server 2013.

We recommend that you test the hotfixes before you deploy them in a production environment. Because the builds are cumulative, each new fix release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included in the previous Host Integration Server 2013 fix release. We recommend that you consider applying the most recent fix release that contains this hotfix.

Important This cumulative update package includes all the product component packages. However, this cumulative update package updates only those features that are currently installed on the system.

More Information

  • All previously released hotfixes for Host Integration Server 2013.
  • Some hotfixes for Microsoft Host Integration Server 2010 and for Microsoft Host Integration Server 2009.
